in reply to Rosetta PGA-TRAM

Well, I'm not only new to Perlmonks, but even newer to Lisp, as I just started to learn it. So, since a lot of different solutions have been posted, I thought I post my Common Lisp version (there's probably a better way to do it and I hope there isn't a bug):

(defun roman_to_dec (roman) (if (not (equal roman "")) (let ((rtoa '((#\M . 1000) (#\D . 500) (#\C . 100) (#\L . 50) (#\X . 10) (#\V . 5) (#\I . 1)))) (reduce #'(lambda (a b) (- (+ a b) (* (mod a b) 2))) (map 'list #'(lambda (c) (cdr (assoc c rtoa))) (string-upcase roman))))))
Update: Ok, the
(if (not (equal roman ""))
could probably be removed, because no error checking is necessary regarding to the description, and it is halfhearted to boot.
